KÖYCEĞİZ – MUĞLA - TURKEY Altitude: 24 m

Scenic Köyceğiz Lake, located near to Dalaman Airport and within convenient distance of Fethiye and Marmaris, is well known for its natural hot springs and mud baths. The lake narrows into a chan­nel, flowing into the Dalyan River and emptying into the Mediterrane­an at one of Turkey's most spectacular beaches. The beach is the breeding ground of the Caretta caretta sea turtle. The reed-edged river meanders to the sea, surmounted by 4th century BC Lycian rock tombs. Nearby are the ruins of the ancient city of Counos.

 

Capacity

Situated next to a natural channel between K6ycegiz Lake and the Mediterranean Sea, the Rıza Çavuş Thermal Baths form a water pool and a mud pond, with a flow rate of about eight liters per sec­ond. The mud and mineral baths can accommodate 1,000 persons per day. A second spring, Velibey Thermal Baths, is located 1.5 km north of Rıza Çavuş, has similar qualities and a flow rate of 20 liters per second.

 

Physlo-chemical characteristics and indications

The Riza Çavuş natural hot springs contain sodium chloride, hydro­gen sulfur, bromide, fluoride, natural radio active (3,770 picokuri/liter = 139 bekerel/liter), with a total salt and mineral content of 28 gr./liter. Temperature of the mud and water is 30 to 3800, and PH about 6.5.

 

Having very attractive physlo-chemical qualities, these hot springs are good for the treatment of rheumatic, dermatological and gynecological diseases, as well as neurological and physical ex­haustion.

 

Treatments and accommodation

The Köyceğiz baths do not offer overnight accommodation. Most visitors stay at small hotels and pensions in nearby Dalyan. The baths can be reached from Dalyan by small boats.

The treatment consists of covering the body with a layer of mud and then soaking in the hot mineral waters. At Sultaniye it is possible to find accommodation in village houses for up to 400 persons.
